QS Best Student Cities ranking: 52nd

Mexico’s lively and unique capital boasts an impressive selection of world-class universities, with no less than eight universities in (or close to) the city featuring in the QS World University Rankings® 2018. Its leading institution, the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) is well established as one of the top universities in Latin America and is a regular fixture at the top of QS’s dedicated ranking for the region.

Mexico City is typically described as a place of contrasts and variety. Students choosing to study here should be aware of the city’s reputation for pollution and crime and be prepared for these aspects. Nevertheless, the city is also known and loved for its grand old colonial-era buildings, its traditional street food, historic sites and archaeological excavations, vibrant annual carnival celebrations, and diverse nightlife.

In addition, Mexico City scores fairly for affordability, due to relatively low tuition fees and low living costs, especially when compared to cities in North America, Western Europe and Australia, for example.
